Recipe | Quick Fried Rice with Capsicum and Almonds – It’s all Greek to me..

Any recognition feels good, as it is a reward and an affirmation of what one does…Hmm..agreed. But what one does when one is featured in two different magazines and is still trying to decipher what is written in there.

Google translation of both the articles makes it a comic read. Well, sometimes, somethings are best if left unsaid. Hoping good is written about me :)  here is how it all started…

The other day I received this mail from the editor of a popular Italian magazine;

Recipes | Three Quick Indian Stir-fry recipes aka Subzis

A Subzi or vegetable stir-fry is an integral part of an Indian Thali (platter). If Subzi is one of the important components alongside a flat bread in a North Indian thali then it takes the form of an accompaniment to rice dishes in South India.

Subzi also refers to any vegetable in Hindi. I like these quick subzis made with fresh vegetables more than the slow-cooked curries wherein the vegetables are completely lost in the flavors of spices and gravies they are cooked in. Whether it is a rich Peas and paneer butter masala or a creamy malai kofta, to me they all taste same.

Recipes | Three easy Indian Stir-Fry recipes aka Subzis – Simple food big flavors

I am jealous of your husband and kids, they get to eat five-star cooking every day” was one of the questions in an online interview on Ganga’s blog here. And she is the nth person to have said the same to me.

The fact remains that most of days what comes out of my kitchen is a simple one-skillet meal with whatever spices or vegetables I have on hand. Yes, my personal favorite is simple Indian food which is quick to cook and is very near to its natural state.

Well…competing for the title of Master Chef is never in my mind, every time that I take a ladle in my hand :)

Recipes | Healthy Wholegrain and Lentil Crepes with quick Spreads – Memories which root us in a time and place

Growing up, we used to visit our granny every holiday. Reaching late at her house and being treated with warm and comforting Bajra khichda (millet porridge) was the best part of our trip.

She would welcome us with a sweet smile and rush to her kitchen to cook a quick meal. The wooden hearth would be hurriedly filled with charcoal to light the fire. She would then open the large round aluminum box placed neatly on wooden shelf and take out handful of wholegrain and lentil grits from it.

Recipe | Healthy Papdi Chaat Tarts- It’s all about sharing my love for food

“What keeps me motivated is not the food itself but all the bonds and memories the food represents.” M. Chiarello
I was slightly disturbed reading a message from a reader last evening which read like this “I love your recipes, but please include step-wise pictures of the recipes and increase the frequency of your blogposts.”

Recipes | Healthy Dill and Potato Oats Crackers – One opportunity leads directly to another

‘When you take the step towards your dreams, you will be met with fears because you have never traveled this way before. As you go, you will discover that you had nothing to fear.’ ~ Gardner

Just as risk leads to more risk, one opportunity leads directly to another. And talking about this opportunity, quite honestly, I never thought that such opportunities could come my way through food blogging.

Some days back, I received a call from a representative of a very popular multinational food manufacturing company
